I bought this album without hearing any of the tracks beforehand, on the strength of Tracy Thorn's unique voice, her collaboration with massive attack and, of course, her work as half of everything but the girl for which she is best known. After only ten days of listening to it at every opportunity, I have been rewarded with a sense of smugness that my instinct was right, and can honestly say that this album is an instant classic. Although it is multi-faceted in style and tempo, Out of The Woods never fails to excite my musical palate, and I have found myself playing it to any friend who shares my passion for music. In particular, even as a hardened clubber and lover of house music, I have been completely blown away by the feeling I get every time I listen to Grand Canyon, which for me is the standout track. The instrumental alone makes this song worthy of being a massive hit in clubland, but the vocal gives it so much more depth and if there is any justice at all, it will be heard at the end of the night at all the best nights in the country!

This record was a great surprise and is a true pleasure. Thorn has made a gorgeous album: eleven tracks mesh a domestic setting and soulful feelings with electronica beats laced with piano and strings. All the while she masters (as she has for a great many years) the fine art of infusing her voice with a wistful sadness but letting the delivery be glassy and poised. The true depth of emotion only partly seeps through; the listener gets the feeling that something more painful is held out of view.

A loose concept seems to jaunt through the album: The setting is usually domestic; the mood is that of a soulful house party, swaying between meditation and disco. The quiet, almost whispered vocals of the opening tracks set to strings shimmy into the dance beats of "It's all true" and "Get Around to it"; the light-footed "Hands up to the ceiling" gives way to a deep-beated, high-vocalled exploration of love ("if there's any doubt / You're better off without"), the mid-tempo "Falling off a log" and onto the dancefloor of "Grand Canyon" with its throbbing refrain. The party arc is brought to a close not in the thoughtful reflection of "By Piccadilly Station" but with the beat-led "Raise the roof", leaving you with the feeling that the party shimmies on.

If there is one weakness, it would lie in the programming: the voguish club beats are occasionally too banal or unadventurous (e.g. "Grand Canyon", "Get Around to it"). But this doesn't stop the album being genuinely fresh and quirky, especially in its interweaving of intimacy, experiences of motherhood and electronica (which reminded me of Kate Bush's "Aeriel").

I have never written a review for an album but on this occasion, I have felt moved to want to encourage anyone who enjoys good music to get Out of the Woods. It is rare that you can buy an album that you can play again and again on repeat and enjoy every song without getting bored. Across a broad bandwidth of emotions and with complex sentiments and complicated pleasures, this album showcases Tracey's amazing voice and her amazing and unpredictable musical talent. As if that wasn't enough, the album has extraordinary production values and the detail is thoughtful, clever and bears days and weeks worth of listening. The intelligence that has gone into this album is stunning and Tracey should be well awarded and rewarded for bring British music and singing to a new high. Thanks Tracey.

This is a wonderful album from someone whose voice is one of the most fabulous I have ever heard. I have loved it since the early days of Everything but the Girl, and the wait since the last album put out by them has been a very long one. I cannot descirbe my excitement when I found out this album was about to be released.

If you know Everything but the Girl you will be familiar with the depth, silkiness and effortless sensitivity of Tracey Thorn's voice, coupled here with some bautiful songs; it is a fabulous mix of dance music alongside the raw emotion familiar from her EBTG days, which suits her voice so well.

She surely is one of our most underrated and talented artists. I never tire of the sound of her voice, and this album displays her at her very best. I dare you to listen to it and not feel joy!

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Mr. S. J. Moulton on 11 May 2007
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album on the back of hearing the excellent 'It's all true'- track 3 on the album. That track is a smooth, electronica tune, quite reminiscent of EBTG of old. Elsewhere, the album is mostly a far more sombre and chilled-out affair, save for a quite deep-housey track, 'Grand Canyon' (track 9, also a great tune, I haven't checked but it sounds suspiciously Ben Watts-produced). This is a good thing however. If you're considering this album in the first place you will already be well-aware of Thorn's intoxicating vocals and she has truly surpassed herself with this effort. All the tracks on here are at least pretty good, most are very good. Thought-provoking and reflective lyrics are the order of the day, and when you've finished listening through it (it only takes 45 mins) you get the feeling that you've really listened to something quite exceptional. The stand-out tracks for me are 'Grand Canyon' and the track that immidiatley follows it, 'By Piccadily station I sat down and wept'- 2 hugely contrasting tunes that demonstrate the depth of this album and Thorn's unquestionale talent. I'm sure some of you would agree with me that all too many reviewers seem keen to dish out 5*'s for music that ends up as more like a 3*. This is a genuine 5* album and one of the best CD's i've heard so far this year.
